Strategic fit from DMG MORI more suitable than ever

2020 was an exceptional year: Corona pandemic plus economic weakness, geopolitical uncertainties, industrial restructuring. Global demand for machine tools was declining significantly due to corona and economic factors. Also DMG MORI could not escape these consequences: Order intake, sales revenues and result were clearly below the record year 2019. The negative effects of the crisis could successfully be limited by rapidly introduced and consistently implemented measures to reduce costs, increase flexibility and secure liquidity – while maintaining a stable budget for research and development. Order intake reached € 1,599.4 million (previous year: € 2,563.1 million). Sales revenues were € 1,831.3 million (previous year: € 2,701.5 million). The earnings situation developed successfully despite more difficult market and economic conditions: EBIT amounted to € 81.7 million (previous year: € 221.7 million). The EBIT margin reached 4.5% (previous year: 8.2%). At € 15.7 million, free cash flow was positive (previous year: € 168.8 million).
